To seek a shelter in an humbler shed.

Warn’d by the languor of life’s evening ray,
At length have housed me in an humble shed.

Against the houseless stranger shuts the door.

Who drives the stranger from his door away.

To spurn imploring famine from the gate.

With their four wives; and God made fast the door.
